Meet Our Team
Karen Beeson, LSW
Mental Health Counselor (Geneva office or telehealth)
I am a licensed social worker based in Geneva, Illinois. I completed my Master of Social Work degree at Aurora University.
Some clients come to therapy to work on specifics, while others bring a less particular notion of what they hope to achieve. Together we will explore and identify obstacles and develop a plan to take you where you wish to be. In the process, it is my privilege to create a safe and comfortable space for you to feel heard and supported.
I work with pre-teens, teens, adults, couples, and families. My clients come to me to address concerns related to depression, anxiety, trauma, family conflict, grief, parenting, career concerns, social skills, life transitions and relationships.
Respect for your unique identity, perspective and goals remains at the forefront as we work together. Some goals expressed by my clients include increasing self-awareness, confidence, self-esteem and emotional regulation, while broadening their base of coping and communication skills.
My process centers on your needs. I incorporate aspects of cognitive-behavioral therapy, solution-focused therapy, mindfulness, strengths based practices and attachment based therapy. I am dedicated to my continuing education and the advancement of my knowledge of mental health theories, practice, and treatment.
I bring to your session additional pertinent personal and professional experiences ranging from parenting to the fields of education and professional development. Outside of the office I enjoy painting, reading, exploring cultures new to me, and spending time with my college-aged sons.
I offer morning, afternoon, and evening appointments, either in person or virtually. I welcome you to get in touch to begin your journey toward the life you want, personal growth and increased happiness.
